The hour-long Sex Season programme, which includes the F-word and discussions about oral sex and sex aids, is due to be screened on BBC3 on Thursday.Vivienne Pattison, of TV watchdog Mediawatch, said: “The show is terrible, almost a freak show.It’s also irresponsible, inappropriate, disturbing and even exploitative towards some of those featured in it.
The last time the BBC breached the code was when Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand used offensive language during prank calls to Andrew Sachs on Radio 2.
That resulted in the Corporation being fined £150,000.
What is troubling critics demanding cleaner standards on television is that Ofcom has no power to force the BBC to pull the programme.
Ofcom can only act against a television channel after a broadcast.
Ms Pattison plans to lodge an official complaint with the BBC and Ofcom.
She is scathing about the lack of sex education in the show.
“If this programme is designed to be educational it clearly fails.
If however it is designed as entertainment then it is prurient and exploitative.
“It is extraordinary that in following a teenager getting ready to lose her virginity, a bikini wax is filmed as an essential part of her preparation but condoms are not even mentioned.
